Justin Moore earns ninth No 1

“Why We Drink” is from latest studio album

Justin Moore tops country radio with his ninth No. 1, “Why We Drink” this week on both the Mediabase/Country Airplay and Billboard Country charts. The song follows “The Ones That Didn’t Make It Back Home” and marks the second No. 1 from Moore’s Late Nights And Longnecks album, released last summer via The Valory Music Co.

Moore wrote “Why We Drink” alongside David Lee Murphy, Casey Beathard and Jeremy Stover, and the song is produced by Moore, Stover and Big Machine Label Group President/CEO/Founder Scott Borchetta. The rowdy accompanying music video was filmed at Moore’s Poyen, AR home with friends and family, including his mother who was the inspiration behind the track.

Moore recently announced his Live At The Ryman album — featuring duets with David Lee Murphy, Chris Janson and Ricky Skaggs — from his May 2018 sold out show at the esteemed venue. Three tracks are available online now, and the full album will be released on Friday, September 25th digitally with physical copies available at Walmart.
